A Marylebone Meander (via its pubs)
Tucked away from the famous Marylebone High Street can be found some amazing historic pubs. So what better way is there to spend an afternoon than by taking a walk and spending half an hour in each of two pubs. Hear about some of the characters and events associated with the area, learn how Grotto Passage got its name. Find out where 100,000 bodies are said to be buried, just off the High Street and who London’s most successful, but now sadly forgotten bare knuckle boxer was. We will visit a pub with a probably unique and very unusual listed interior and a traditional pub slightly off the beaten track. On our way we will also discover some of London’s best food shops and foodie related events. The walk finishes in a bar that many Londoners are unaware of, on the 15th floor of a hotel with fantastic views, but still charging normal pub prices. This tour is not available on Sundays as the pubs aren’t open!
Contact me for availability and cost. All walks can be adapted to start and finish at a venue of choice in the immediate area.
Please note: this is not a pub crawl but a walking tour exploring Marylebone via its pubs.
